The Rathmullan Film Festival is an all ages inclusive and participatory festival taking place in the beautiful seaside village of Rathmullan from 15 to 18 February.
The programme has been curated by local community groups, businesses, school kids and film fanatics, with a view to engaging the local community in the creation of unique cinematic experiences.
This is a different approach to film festival programming as it promotes local creativity while offering residents and visitors a versatile programme of film screenings, workshops, food & film experiences, industry talks, sports fun and pub entertainment.
The kids workshop programme includes an animation workshop led by Cormac O’Kane on Thursday 15th, acting workshop with Donegal actor Jason Matthewson on Friday 16th, and a poster collage for arts and crafts lovers with the film festival team.
Saturday 17th will offer an afternoon of Industry talks which will cover topics such as setting up an award-winning production company, how to get started in the film business and the role of virtual reality in the future of cinema. Speakers include: Pierce Boyce (Abu Media), actor and director Keith O’Grady, director Orla Walsh, actor Jason Matthewson, writer and filmmaker Derek O’Connor, producers Catherine Lyons and John Doherty (Camel Productions) and VR developer Dr.Jamie McrRoberts.
The programme also includes artistic pieces which were produced by locals especially for the festival, including an animation short, an archive compilation film, a documentary film and an interactive projection experience.
Sponsored by the local community, the Regional Cultural Centre and Screen Training Ireland, the RFF is the newest effort to support and promote film practice in Donegal and celebrate the North West filmmaking scene, complementing the work of other festivals such as The Disappear Here Film Festival, Earagail Arts Festival and Foyle Film Festival.
